    Overall, the GREEN ARROW run has been one of my favorites in the DC REBIRTH. Percy has been consistently great as a writer and all of the artists involved have done well to maintain the tone of each individual story. Next issue will likely wrap up the Arrow team's espionage adventure on the Trans-Pacific railway. As long as the grounded and gritty street level hero can continue to deliver good comics, we will continue to enjoy them! Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Batmanaruto Nov 2, 2016

    My only complaint with this issue is we have a case where Team Arrow, are framed at the end, although it is painfully obvious it is not them. This is a minor complaint that will no doubt be solved in the next issue, however Green Arrow was framed in the last main arc, and has to tackle the police in the next arc, it seems framing seems to be related with Olly, almost as much as the island is. However Ben Percy continues to do it in ways that it has not got stale so far, leaving much for the readers to still remain intrigued. Read Full Review

    Murder on the Empire Express is a lovely adaptation of the classic Agatha Christie murder mystery, only with superheroes, foreign dignitaries, and boxing glove arrows. Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Nov 3, 2016

    Whilst the story seemed to chop the fact that Oliver's a fugitive from Seattle PD AND lost his company in favour of a desert island story, it flowed seamlessly into the political spy thriller that we see inGreen Arrow #10. We'll give the writers credit, they know how to keep this story as fast paced as possible. It barely stops to catch a breath before running and leaping into another dangerous situation. It seems like they'll never get back to Seattle at this rate. The issue is action packed, and gives Black Canary a brilliant place to shine, it looks like the Green Arrow is back to his usual level of brilliance. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 1, 2016

    Since the setup is too good to rush through in one setting, there's a cliffhanger on this one. Maybe next issue, Percy will work in some Snowpiercer elements to really amp up the fun. Read Full Review

    I mentioned in my review of the previous issue that it felt like this series was running out of steam after an impressively strong start.  Well, Im happy to report that this issue marks a welcome return to form, and that Percy and Ferreyras energetic, vibrant take on the character hits you like a Boxing Glove Arrow to the face.  Its not flawless by any means, but it is a hell of a lot of fun, and if this trend continues is definitely worth a couple of your hard earned quid every fortnight.

    Overall, this is a fun issue. It has a great concept by Percy with some cool moments for all three characters to shine. And the art is fantastic especially the coloring. I recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Razorfine - Alan Rapp Nov 9, 2016

    Although awkward in parts (like just how exactly did Dinah manage to brand the expensive cocktail dress in a handful of minutes?), there's definitely some fun to be had here in the heroes' struggle to board the train and their search for the assassin. The unique locale certain gives the issue an interesting slant, especially now that Ollie, Dinah, and Diggle are trapped aboard with angry passengers, guards, and an escaped assassin, without any way to escape. Worth a look. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 2, 2016

    Ben Percy starts another two part story and I already wish it was longer.  Not because I like it, but because it needed more setup and explanation.  I like the concept of murder mystery on a train full of dignitaries, but without any background, it falls flat.  I did love Juan Ferreyra's art, but in the end, I can't really recommend this issue.

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 2, 2016

    This is an average superhero story with an espionage angle that suits the character. The art pops though and it'll make it worth the price of admission alone for most! Read Full Review
